Baby chicks, ducklings and a wagon

Igor's nursery school has baby chicks again this year! They also have ducklings. They are all so cute. Igor and his friends at nursery school, feed, water and care for the new additions. It's so sweet to see the children caring for each chick and duckling. Caring for the ducklings and chicks is teaching the children responsibility, gentleness, and respect for nature and other living beings. Igor has been asking to have chickens in the back yard for a while now. I am waiting for the duckling request.

At nursery school Igor loves to load up a wagon with sand, bricks, logs or children and pulls them across the property. Yep, he is really strong enough to haul all I have listed. The first time I saw him hauling around two kiddos, I was in awe.
We thought Igor would enjoy a wagon here at home. I found a brand new wagon on CraigsList that was in our price range so we bought it. I thought Igor would load the wagon up with large landscaping rocks. I was wrong. He grabbed the compost shovel and started to dig up the mulch... hmmmm... that wasn't what I had in mind. I like the mulch where it is. So, I suggested he pick up the weeds I was pulling and haul them them to the street for the yard waste pick up. Here's Igor digging up the mulch and taking the first load of weeds to the street.

Awww, the chicks are so cute! If I ever get my mini farm you'll have to bring Igor for a visit. :)

Igor was a busy boy working in his yard-- he's getting in some practice for when he grows up and is the "man of the yard... I mean, house"! :) I had to catch up on all your blogs! I got behind-- you've been busy!! Glad you are feeling better.
Take care,

my daughter says OH, love the chicks and my 4 year old boy ... loves to dig up and haul dirt! any where, any time, any place; I just can't seem to get him to put it back where he dug it up from! Boys love dirt!
Praying for "the tooth" to go away still! :)
